Title: Development of an Integrated Parametric Environment for Conceptual Hypersonic Missile Sizing
Author: Ender, Tommer Rafael ; McClure, Erin Kathleen ; Mavris, Dimitri N.
Abstract: This paper outlines the method by which a graduate missile design team studying at Georgia Tech?s Aerospace System Design Laboratory (ASDL) created an environment that would link design parameters to vehicle metrics for the design of a High Speed Standoff Missile. The sizing and synthesis environment parametrically links multiple physics based disciplinary analyses, so that many aspects of the design can be studied simultaneously. That environment was then used to conceptually design a missile that best met the unobtainable requirements set by the customer. The process resulted in the conceptual design of a liquid fueled ramjet cruise missile that was compatible with the Vertical Launch System. The missile cruised at Mach 5, and was capable of striking targets up to 1462 km away.
